Energised, he threw it open and barked at some random passerby, "Hey!"We heard a muffled "What?"-an older man's voice. Winter thrust the poster out into space."Look at this!"A beat, then Sorbeck asked, "So? What does it make you think of?""Uh, elephants?'"RIGHT! Hah! Go AWAY!"He pulled it back in and faced us. Intoxicated."You SEE? POWER!"He reflexively beat his fist against the window, cracking the pane. He did it again. We heard a shower of glass hit the pavement."Do you SEE?"
This passage really stood out to me because it characterizes Winter as well as gives insight into his thinking process. The phrase "Do you SEE?" shows that Winter is trying to get his students to take away more from his class besides the proper design of advertisements and instead wants his students to learn how to influence the world. From a formalist lens, the capitalization of certain words stresses what Mr. Sorbeck is trying to say. Words like "intoxicated" and "power" show that he really cares about what he is teaching.
